VIDEO: Week 9 SOT Featured Game: Aurora vs Highland

Aurora was supposed to travel to Highland on Friday, but due to the threat of inclement weather, the game was pushed back to Saturday. The highly anticipated Suburban League matchup featured both teams that came into this game with a 7-1 record. The main theme of the game was defense. Highlands offense was the only team to manage to score points. Aaron Filips scored the Hornets only touchdown while Avery Gerney kicked a 21 yard field goal to pace Highland to a 10-0 victory.

VIDEO Highlights: Week 9 SOT Featured Game: Mentor gets big win over Strongsville 21-9.

By Rob Trautman

Strongsville, OH- A Week 9 matchup that featured two teams from the Greater Cleveland Conference. The Mentor Cardinals have battled injuries but are looking to get back to their winning ways, losing 3 in a row, two of which were down to the wire. Strongsville has won their last two out of three games, which all three games were close.

In the first quarter Strongsville would score first with a nice drive that resulted in 3 points by Mustangs Kicker Will Hryszko. He was busy on this night, kicking 3 field goals. Strongsville’s starting QB Maddux Beard left early in the first quarter with an injury and Senior QB Michael Kenny replaced him the rest of the game. Mentor would answer right back with QB Jacob Snow connecting with WR Nick Farley, Mentor took a 7-3 lead heading into the second quarter.

In the second quarter Strongsville would again get close but have to settle for another Will Hryszko field goal that would cut the lead to 7-6 Cardinals lead. Mentor QB Jacob Snow would answer again connecting from 38 yards with WR Michael Norwood. Mentor extended their lead to 14-9. Mentor’s defense held Strongsville’s offense in check all night, and forced some key turnovers deep into Cardinals territory. Before half the Cardinals would get one more score with 28 seconds left from Mentor RB Mitchell Waite who ran it in from 3 yards out. At half the Cardinals led 21-6.

The second half was a stalemate, with some action but no scoring. Then, as the 4th quarter began, the rain started to downpour making conditions slick, and tough to hold onto the ball. Strongsville would get one more field goal from Will Hryszko but that would be it. Falling to the Cardinals 21-9.

Mentor improves to 4-5 on the year with a matchup with Euclid next. Strongsville falls to 5-4 with a rivalry game next against Brunswick.

VIDEO Highlights: Week 7 SOT Featured Game: Elyria gets first SWC win in dominating performance over North Ridgeville 30-0.

By Rob Trautman

Elyria OH- A Week 7 matchup that featured two teams from the Southwestern Conference. The North Ridgeville Rangers have played well and come into this game with a 3-3 overall record and the Pioneers of Elyria also come in with a 3-3 overall record and looking for their first win in the SWC.

In the first quarter the Pioneers would strike first with a 10 yard touchdown pass from Elyria QB Desmond Whitfield to WR Jaden Gilbert. The XP was no good and the Pioneers led 6-0 in the first quarter.

Early in the second quarter Elyria would pound their running game, as RB Lance Glover would score from 8 yards out. They went for two and got it to extend the lead to 14-0. Still in the second quarter it was the dynamic duo of Elyria QB Desmond Whitfield connecting with WR Andrew Palos from 57 yards. They went for the two point conversion and got it . The score at halftime was 22-0.

The Pioneers would score once more in the second half en route to a 30-0 winner over the Rangers. Give credit to the Pioneers defense who shut out North Ridgeville. They forced a few turnovers and stopped the Rangers on some nice drives inside the red zone that led to no points. Elyria gets their first SWC win and get back to their winning ways. North Ridgeville looks to regroup and get back on track.

Elyria with the win improves to 4-3 (1-3) as they face Avon Lake in Week 8. North Ridgeville falls to 3-4 (1-3) and will travel to Midview next.
